Biotae orientalis (or Platycladus orientalis) is a distinct genus of evergreen coniferous tree in the cypress family Cupressaceae, containing only one species. It is commonly known as Chinese thuja, Oriental arborvitae, Chinese arborvitae, biota or oriental thuja. The plant is commonly used in Chinese herbalism, where it is considered to be one of the 50 fundamental herbs.
